Pipe extruders run PVC pellets through an extruder which transforms the pellets into a molten state.  Bodycote K-Tech ceramics are used to coat the Y-pipe, spider, diffuser, cone and pin components.  This has resulted in a significant life increase and a five-fold reduction in cleaning cycles.

Chrome plated extruder screws, a key component of the injection moulding process, are treated with Tech 12c (Chrome Seal), this has resulted in a ten times life increase over conventional chrome plate
